Hello, my name is***** you for allowing me to assist you today.
If there is water in the filter on the side of the engine, that will trigger the alarm. You would need to get the water out of the fuel tank before running the engine.
If you are running the engine on a hose, allot of Yamaha engines will overheat this way. The water pickups are too small to get enough water to them.
If you are in salt water, you could have block passages inside the head and the sensor is truy getting hot. You would need to remove the cylinder to see that.
